CocoFeed: JewelScent Pumpkin Caramel Ring Candle – Ring Revealed Inside!

This candle is absolutely beautiful and smells great. Although, I wish it was stronger. It didn’t quite fill the room as I had hoped. The ring in this one was a miss for me, but my best friend’s daughter LOVED it.

CocoFeed: First ring obtained! Not really my style. Worth $22 according to the site. Fingers crossed for the next candle! No sign of it yet @jewelscent

This ring appraised for $22!

Quirky Converge 4-port USB Charging Station in Black Aluminum Review

I happened across Quirky products through Amazon while searching for an outlet plug with USB ports. I immediately fell in love with their Converge 4-port USB charging station, but was scared off by the high price: $69-89 depending on the color. I, of course, liked the more expensive version: Black Aluminum. Our apartment’s kitchen has black and silver finishes so it would be perfect there!

I decided to Google reviews and found that Quirky was actually offering their Converge for 60% off with the coupon code CONVERGE. 60%? That’s practically free!

With the coupon, the price was dropped from $89 to only $36. And with tax, it was still under $40. AMAZING!

The Converge charging station arrived today and I am already in love with it. It cleans up our kitchen and looks beautiful at the same time. It really is a quality product and that shows even in the top notch packaging. I am so happy with my purchase.

Unfortunately, they do not seem to have the Aluminum (White and Black) versions in stock, but they still have plain Black, Green, Pink, Teal, and White for $69. The coupon still works as of now, but you need to spend at least $30 to get free shipping and with the coupon the item drops below that price. Luckily they have some pretty neat products that are in the $5 range!

I also really like the Pivot Power Surge Protector as well as the Space Bar Monitor Stand. Although, the latter is pretty expensive. I am on the lookout for an extreme coupon for the Space Bar next!

CocoFeed: Cute Christmas Decor at Hobby Lobby

I picked up this sign at Hobby Lobby for 50% off the $15 retail aka $7.50. Great deal, if you ask me. Currently, all of their Christmas decor is half off until they sell out. I decided to hang this sign on our front door, and I think it looks adorable!

CocoFeed: Our First Christmas Tree

My boyfriend, Jake, and I moved in together this past March after dating for about a year. I haven’t had a Christmas tree is years, since my parent’s stopped putting one up, so this is the first one I have had in a long time. We bought the tree at “At Home” aka Garden Ridge, and the ornament’s came from Hobby Lobby. The tree topper was found on Amazon, and this is the first time I can even remember having a tree topper. I think this style is pretty unique, as most people I know usually have a star or angel on theirs.

CocoFeed: Decorating My Best Friend’s Mortar Board for College Graduation

My best friend is graduating in 2 weeks and she has been freaking out about getting her Mortar Board decorated. Side note, we bought and decorated mine THE DAY BEFORE my graduation… irony? We stopped at Hobby Lobby today and picked up the above items. Here is the outcome:

We chose the tiara because she has always loved crowns and the idea of being a princess. The apple, pencil, and books represent her love for teaching and her field in Education. And lastly, the zebra flowers because she LOVES zebra, tiger, black/white stripes.

I think it came out pretty awesome!

Personalized Rustic ‘My Soulmate’ Picture Frame by PrinceWhitaker

As I mentioned in my Kanvess review, I ordered a custom frame from the Etsy shop PrinceWhitaker for Jake for our 6 month anniversary. This is the first time I have ever purchased from Etsy, and it went very smoothly.
Personalized Rustic 'My Soulmate' Picture Frame by PrinceWhitaker

Hand engraved with a heart with the happy couple’s initials and the script words “my soulmate“. Each one measures 5×5″ with a 3×3” opening for a photo. Our frames are all natural, unfinished wood. The frames are of a rustic chic style, without a glass panel, and we highly recommend that you display them as is to keep them true to that style. 

I was not only able to purchase a (mostly) one-of-a-kind piece, but I was even able to add my own custom touches with no additional charge (I requested the date we met, 12-10-12, be added to the back). The best part? It was only $12.99 with $3.95 shipping.

I definitely recommend anyone looking for cool, rustic themed pieces to check out PrinceWhitaker’s store. They have a large assortment of wedding gifts and decorations. Plus if you like them on their facebook, they will give you a coupon code to use in their store!

Post-It Notes Pop-up Heart Dispenser

Not sure if this is a steal, but I couldn’t resist this! It was a little cheaper than the online price (about $8+). Even though I have to buy different (slightly more expensive) post-it notes, it’s the perfect decor for my desk! They also have other designs (click to see it at Walmart.com).

Though I kinda scratched it on the plastic box when I took it out :( The OCD part of me wants to exchange it, but it’s not THAT noticeable, only in certain light… but still! lol I hate returning stuff so I’ll just suffer through it :P
